It’s a classic The Macallan Single Malt but more of it with perfect balance.

Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the “Big 3” Single Malts in Scotland. Fortunately, they have achieved this scale without sacrificing quality. A change in UK labeling laws aced them out of their “Speyside” designation. But just because the British Parliament gerrymandered the “official” boundaries doesn’t mean whiskey-lovers have to pay any attention.

Their achievements are numerous — including setting the record price ever paid at auction for a single bottle of Scotch. They produce a very broad range of world-class Single Malt Whiskies that have a huge global following.

We travel a lot for work and pleasure. And because we are Whisky-nerds to the core, we don’t mind the occasional airport layover because it gives us the chance to cruise the duty-free shops for rare drams. The Macallan Estate Reserve is one of those. It is normally bottled exclusively for the travel retail market so it’s nearly impossible to get your hands on it in the local shops. In this case, it’s a fine, classic The Macallan Single Malt aged in 100% Sherry hogshead casks and bottled at an extremely pleasant and perfectly balanced at 45.7% ABV.

Corner
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Nose / Aroma / Smell
This fine Single Malt has a perfume of Sherry notes with rancio, tooled leather, cedar wood, apricot, and milk chocolate.

The flavor profile is classic The Macallan and lots of it, with notes of rich Sherry creams, caramel, espresso, baking spices, and berry compote dancing on the tongue.

Finish
The finish lingers nicely with a zesty bite and notes of berries and pecan pralines.
